Yesterday was the topic launch for the Ancient Greek topic here in Y4. We spent the morning reading up on some of the Gods and Goddesses that the Ancient Greeks believed in. We chose the ones that we found most interesting and made Top Trump style cards about them. Miss Hanafin and Miss Grove were genuinely blown away by the high quality pieces that the children produced. We then had a real treat with some Greek inspired food tasting, safely prepared by the lovely adults of Year 4 in the children's kitchen. They tried pitta with honey, Greek yoghurt, goats cheese, figs and olives. The children were bold and brave to try new things and lots of them found something they really enjoyed. This will prepare us well for when we do some cooking on our upcoming Greek day. In the afternoon, we began reading our new class text 'Who Let the Gods Out?' and ended the day using the Ipads to conduct some of our own knowledge seeking research to find out more about this History theme.
We had a fantastic day and hope that the children are excited to delve deep into this topic. Have a look at the pictures to see what we got up to.
